So big was Vernon’s secret, even his parents were in the dark.
Vishnu shares in Seven Sacred Promises a road map for becoming your authentic self. When society pushes you to conform in a way that breaks your spirit or derails your life, Vishnu brings you back to what really matters in this heartfelt, encouraging book. This is the perfect book to guide anyone who is ready for a life change. It is also a book for those of us who appreciate the much needed reminder about what is truly important in life. I highly recommend Vishnu's Seven Sacred Promises! The book Seven Sacred Promises resonated with me strongly.

In my opinion, everybody should read it, contemplate on its message and hopefully act accordingly. The author presents social expectations we are all victims of. That is why the author urges you to make new promises — the promises to yourself. He suggests the steps on how to do that and through his personal story shows you it is possible to break free from social expectations.
Hence the entrenched status of age and disability pensions, the basic wage, unemployment relief, employee and road-accident compensation schemes, as well as universal health cover, no-fault divorce, legal aid, child care and regulations to constrain markets in the public interest.
But most of the time it sees itself as a champion of small government, citing conservative theories to ignore egalitarian values.

It is, however, important to recall why there has never been a constitutional duty on government to keep its promises. But the threshold is not set by epic events - if material facts change so as to render an election promise pointless, or a waste of public money, or self-defeating, the government has a default duty to protect the interests of the community.
In such cases we might criticise the government, not for breaking promises, but for making careless or foolish commitments, knowing the public will rely on them, and some might suffer loss. We need to clarify whether new circumstances justify the decision, and if the government responded with competence, a sense of the moral cost of breaking its promise, and a readiness to mitigate harm if appropriate.
These issues call for thoughtful examination by journalists and opinion writers. If keeping a promise will undermine the rights of groups or individual citizens, government has a duty to defend them, however much this disappoints or offends voters; In such a case we should, again, condemn it for making promises, not for breaking them - unless, of course, it had no intention to keep them. We should not forget that a mandate is a promise by government to do its best to implement a program. Our Fatima Prayers page is also now a podcast.
